The Corinthians were founded in 1882 by N.L.”Pa” Jackson, Asst. Hon. Sec. of the Football Association. His aim was to develop a club side capable of challenging Scotland at international level.
Within four years, calling on the best amateurs from the public schools and universities, there were nine Corinthians in the England team. Twice, the national squad consisted of all Corinthian players. The Corinthians went on to challenge some of the top professional teams in the land including, in 1904, beating Manchester United 11 – 3, still their worst defeat.
They also took football round the world, touring in South Africa, Canada, the United States, South America and across Europe, including Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Spain, Denmark and Germany.
In 1910, after a visit to Sao Paulo in Brazil, the locals were so impressed they founded a Corinthians of their own, now Corinthians Paulista, one of the most successful clubs in South America; in 2012 they beat Chelsea to become the current World Club Champions.
Real Madrid, and some say the English National Team, play in white shirts and navy shorts partly in tribute to the Corinthians.
Potentially our toughest game of the season so far, as Corinthian-Casuals sit in 2nd place, level on points with top of the table Lewes, with just 2 goal difference less on +21.
They’ve lost just 3 times all season, once at home early in the season against Carshalton Athletic, and twice away to Greenwich Borough and Cray Wanderers.
They’ve scored 18 goals in their last 5 league matches, conceding just 6, and in those 5 matches beat the likes of Lewes, Hastings United, Ramsgate, Molesey and South Park.
They’ve only failed to score in 3 matches all season so far, including a match against our namesake side in Middlesex in the Emirates FA Cup.
Following on from our defeat vs Herne Bay on Tuesday night, which ended 5-3 to the visitors, we currently sit in 23rd, 6 points ahead of Shoreham in 24th, with 1 better goal difference.
